About Code-Alarm, Inc.
Code-Alarm Inc (the Company) is a major manufacturer of branded and factory labeled vehicle security and remote-keyless-entry devices. The Company is a supplier to major automakers and also supplies factory-label security products to vehicle dealerships around the globe. The Company also sells vehicle security and remote keyless entry systems bearing the Code-Alarm and Chapman brand names at approximately 2,000 locations worldwide.
During the year ended December 31, 1998, the Company's principal business was the manufacture and sale of vehicle security and remote keyless entry systems. The Company's products are sold worldwide.
The Company's vehicle security systems utilize low power radio frequency technology and are operated by remote micro-transmitters. The Company's vehicle security systems fall into two broad categories: alarm systems and remote keyless entry systems.
Alarm Systems: In general, the Company's alarm systems contain two major components: an immobilizer circuit and a siren. The immobilizer circuit prevents the automobile from being started unless the alarm system has been turned off. Each system automatically resets itself after the siren has been sounded for a predetermined period. Many of these systems allow the operator to choose between manually setting the alarm upon leaving the vehicle and having the alarm automatically set one minute after the keys are removed from the ignition switch. Various other components, such as hood locks and impact sensors, can generally be added to the alarm system.
The remote micro-transmitter is used to turn the alarm system on and off. This basic unit is typically sold as part of a system, which is configured in various ways based upon the customer preferences.
In addition to remote alarm systems, the Company also produces digital and passive alarm systems, which offer a lower level of protection. Digital systems, unlike remote systems, do not offer a way to turn the alarm system on and off from outside the vehicle. Instead, upon entering the vehicle, the operator has a fixed period of time to turn off the alarm system by entering the proper numerical sequence on a keypad.
Remote Keyless Entry Systems: The Company's remote keyless entry system enables the operator to use the remote micro-transmitter to lock and unlock the doors or open the trunk from outside the vehicle without having to use keys, to turn on the interior light to see if anyone is waiting inside the vehicle and to set off the siren in the event of a personal emergency.
The Company's products are sold in two categories: OEM and aftermarket. OEM includes those products sold in the OEM market for vehicle installation before delivery of a new vehicle to the purchaser through installation by the automaker or as a dealer-installed option. Post-delivery includes those products, which are installed on a vehicle already owned by the customer, through retail specialty stores, or by an automotive expediter.
The Company's primary OEM customers consist of General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Subaru and Mitsubishi.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
